ABOUT

Paul Brooking is a London-based director, photographer and designer with many years experience working in the advertising and music industries. He has received numerous awards and his work has been shown at the Royal Academy, the National Portrait Gallery, Cannes, the Royal Photographic Society, and D&AD.

Originally, he trained under his father Alan Brooking, a pioneer advertising photographer from the Sixties famous for Saatchi’s ‘Pregnant Man’ and Bartle Bogle Hegarty’s ‘Black Sheep’, before embarking on his own illustrious creative career.

His personal photographic projects, inspired by the Twentieth Century American realist painter Edward Hopper, explore subtle emotions and interplay between characters to create a cinematic narrative within a still image.
